|Thinking only of his breakfast

in consequence of the missive, Mr Hurst, penned by Linden
The few glimpses we are given of him seem to me to fit in exactly with the Mr. Hurst the movie shows us:
"he was an indolent man, who lived only to eat, drink, and play at cards, who when he found her to prefer a plain dish to a ragout, had nothing to say to her."
and in the evening when no one wishes to play cards:
"Mr. Hurst had therefore nothing to do, but to stretch himself on one of the sofas and go to sleep."
I never considered him to be a dandy (for if he were, would he risk wrinkling his outfit in his nap...) I just thought it was a way of saying that he had more the style of a man of property than the actuality.
